The Language Lover
When Andres was 13 years old, he left his hometown of Merida, Mexico to embark on an academic journey that took him around the world to Ireland, China, Jordan, and the United States. Andres' experiences in other countries led to a deep passion for communication and language skills that he continues to utilize. During the pandemic, for instance, he volunteered as a translator for the health department on public service announcements in Arabic.
